Founded in April of 2014, the organization was established to bolster the flow of desperately needed resources to the nuns and priest in Ouanaminth who feed the homeless children of the border town. Three daily meals are prepared and served to the children—all of whom are under the age of 15. We also house three children who would otherwise be homeless. With each meal costing approximately $0.50, a child can be properly fed for less than two dollars per day.
